Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

John McCain vs. Indian Country

John McCain blows off meeting with Indians to hit the real cultural highlight of South Dakota--Sturgis. Pretty sad, really, given that McCain has had a decent record on Indian issues in the Senate, but evidently hundreds of yuppies pretending to be Hell's Angels is more important. That and the topless women.

UPDATE: Does McCain's willingness to enter his wife in a topless (and frequently bottomless) drunken "Beauty pageant" at a biker bar indicate A) he has no idea what goes on at these things and is therefore a latte-sipping elitist; or B) he does know and is just a sexist jerk? For extra bonus points, what do you think the MSM would be doing if Obama had made the same comments in the same venue?

Given McCain's record of abandoning his first wife after she was slightly disfigured in a horrific car accident for a younger trophy wife, and going on to call the second wife a trollop and a c***, I'd vote for sexist jerk.

For the bonus points, I'd guess 24/7, break-into-whatever's-going-on, "this will be the end of his campaign" coverage on all the cable networks. Of course, I could be underestimating it. They could break into the soaps and pre-empt the Olympics.

Just an afterthought: A) and B) aren't necessarily mutually exclusive.

I will go further and bet that the McCain will blast any media criticism as "elitist" attacks on ordinary hard-working beer-drinking crotch-rocket riding Americans who happen to like bodacious ta-tas.

But I like Obama and bodacious ta-tas. What am I supposed to do?
